    White men who owned property.  Yep that's a heck of a start.  But consider where they cam from.  The European societies of the time were life and liberty for those born in high places ... For the rest not so much.  So it was a leap forward but hardly achieved the lofty ideals.

    Is our culture insane you ask?  No, it is quite sane in the sense of being understandable but not healthy for the majority of people.  The reason is that it works in a highly unequal manner for a privileged few at the top.  Is goals is the accumulation of capital and not the well being of its citizens.
